ARGUMENT. 



Some yeai-s previous to the commencement of this drama, Squire Thornhill had the misfortune to 
lose his infant son, while being bathed in the Shannon, in company with the nurse's child, who 
was saved. The child's mother never recovered from the effects of the distressing calamity, he 
being her only child ; and her death, which took place shortly afterwards, induced the Squire (his 
father) to solace his grief by retiring to the Continent ; and having obtained a diplomatic appoint- 
ment, he leaves the management of his estate to an agent, Walter Talbot. 

The Opera commences with a picturesque scene, showing forth the former happy state of the 
village. Oliver Goldsmith, who plays an important part, is passing through the district, where 
his late fatlier had formerly been pastor ; and as was usual with lum in all his travels, he enters 
into the life and spirit of the peasantry's amusements and cares. Among the latter, Patrick 
O'DonneU, a young peasant, confides to him the secret of his love for Nora, the village pride — a love 
mutual and unchangeable. When the peasantry have retired from the dance, The Boccah (a kind 
of village story-teller) relates to his friend the substance of a vision he had the previous night, 
wherein he sees the growing dislike of Talbot to Patrick O'Donnell, occasioned by Patrick's being 
the acknowledged suitor for Nora's hand, to whose love Talbot aspires. In his vision he sees also 
the long-lost son of the Squire appear in the person of a grown young man returned from the 
Spanish wars ; but his vision does not reveal to him any further clue as to his identity, although he 
was the boatman on the occasion of the accident. During the action of the drama. Goldsmith's 
charming pictures are brought out in bold relief, and the first act ends with a continuation of the 
village festival, showing 

" The dancing pair who simply sought renown 
By holding out to tire each other down." 

In the second act, we have to a certain extent realized the Boccah's vision, inasmuch as the 
disturbing influences here begin to prevail in the unwelcome attentions of Walter Talbot, 
the agent, to Nora. Talbot, an unscrupulous and revengeful man, takes counsel with his minions, 
and Patrick, fearing that his presence would have the eflfect of injuring the prospects of his family, 
resolves to seek his fortune in the Spanish service ; and having exchanged with Nora vows of 
mutual constancy and love, retires, leaving Nora behind, promising to return and seek her hand on 
some happier day. Some disputes with the peasantry about this time having also arisen, many of 
them decide upon emigrating, whereby the once happy village becomes Deserted. 

A lapse of years is supposed to intervene between the second and third acts. In the interim 
Oliver returns, and Nora has been subject to the continued persecution of Talbot, who, finding all 
other means fail, has devised with his myrmidons during the dark nights a forcible abduction of 
the girl, where he is to appear under the disguise of a peasant, and under the pretence of rescuing 
her from a band of rufiians, supposed to be hired by another squireen, to work upon her gratitude, 
and carry her ofi" himself. This manoeuvre, however, is frustrated by the stupidity of one of his 
own men, who, not knowing him in his disguise, and mistaking him for Patrick — who is expected 
home just then — attacks him in mistake, and puts hira hors de combat. About this time, many of the 
peasantry, who have been successful, and have realized means abroad, return, wishing to live at peace 
in their native land ; but the desolate aspect of the Deserted Village deters them. The news of his 
agent's untimely death having reached Squire ThornhiU, in Genoa, he hastens home to look after his 
property. The melancholy reminiscences of his lost child are brought vividly before him as he 
passes the Shannon, the scene of the disaster On meeting Nora, the Squire accuses her 
of being the innocent cause of much of the misery which befel the village, by declining the 
addresses of Talbot for that of a peasant boy who had left her and might never return. The 
arrival of Patrick, however, at the moment, in company with the Boccah, is full answer to the 
Squire's remarks ; and having embraced Nora, and paid their respects to the Squire, the lovers 
retire, and after some conversation between the Squire and the Bocoah, in which an incident is 
aeeidentally revealed in reference to Patriclc, the conclusion is arrived at that Patrick is the Squire's 
long-lost son. The return of Patrick with Nora confirms this happy surmise, and the Squire, in 
grateful recognition to Providence, joins the hands of the youthful lovers, bestows his blessing, 
and leaves Patrick and Nora in sole enjoyment of the estate at Ballymahon, where the returned 
happy tenantry now retire, bidding farewell to 

" Sweet Aububn, loveliest village of the plain. 
Where health and plenty cheer the lab'ring swain." 

In the action of the drama, all the charming pictures of Goldsmith's exquisite poem hav« 
been interwoven with the plot.

Unter on one side, or meeting in the centre, come 
down, Laurence O'Brien and Shamus 
O'Donnell — tivo old men, who begin as it 
were to converse, and take a couple of seats 
heneath the shade referred to by Goldsmith; 
and nearly at the same time Patrick 
O'Donnell and Nora O'Brien, the young 
lovers, meet, coming from opposite sides of 
the stage, and after greeting, they retire to 
one of the bowers for lover's made. 

Oi-iTEK Goldsmith {speaking). — And see 
they come e'en now to their accustomed place, 
the fathers on the one side of wealth and 
worldly havings thinking most, and favour 
showing but to those who can some riches 



boast ; the youthful lovers poor in all save the 
grace of never-failing feith and virtuous love ; 
the swain, my friend, afthough of humble birth, 
a poor man's son, and toiling for his bread, is 
yet more like love's favour to obtain. Of his 
approved great merits and high desert, his 
duties never failing to discharge — of manly 
form and pleasing to behold — without his peer 
in ev'ry manly grace — athletic sport, leap, dance 
and race — withal most courteous, ne'er assum- 
ing place, but wooing favour with a winning 
tongue. 

Laurence O'Brien and Sharms O'Donnell rise 
from their seats, and advancing, commence

Mnter slowly, from the heights of the mrrounding 
hills, accompanied by soft music, two 
Peasants — one of them The Boccah, the 
other his friend. 

Boccah. — Well, we've had a long pull over 
the mountains. I would gladly rest myself, 
but are not those the signs of a village festival ? 

Peasant. — Tea, yes, there has been a 
gathering here, no doubt; but as we were 
coming along did you not notice that the house 



of Tim Sheaban, the schoolmaster, is shut up ? 
Poor Tim, I aupjjose he's dead and gone ; if so, 
he has not left a better behind. 

Enter Latjhencb (old man). — Indeed, you 
may say that ; but the place you saw shut up 
is where he last lived, when times got bad with 
him. The place he kept the school in is altered 
now ; yonder, between the boreen and the field, 
is where he had his school. I will describe it 
to you.

BoccAH (to Peasant). — Could we make our 
way, think you, to the village ale-house, to get 
a mug of ale, 1 feel so tired. Last night I 
had a vision, I thought this happy village was 
about to become the scene of one of those un- 
holy crusades against the tenantry which take 
place elsewhere. I dreamt that Walter Talbot, 
the newly-appointed agent, was a party to a 
cruel oppression ; and in my dream — a sudden 
and intense darkness having overspread the face 
of nature — terrific sounds re-echoed through 
the gloom, and I could only see the demon 
Jealousy urging on the young mind of Talbot 
to deeds of violence and wrong.

BoccAH. — Well, yes, your honour ; and I 
well remember your brother, who lived in yon-

is goae now. 

Oliver. — My poor brother ! Little I

BoccAH (fo friend'). — My dream ia only 
half told ; but the second part ia more cheerfiil 
than the first. Some twenty years ago two 
boys were bathing in the Shannon close by. 
The youngest was drowned. I dreamt last night 
that 'twas the eldest who was drowned, and the 
youngest saved. 

Boy. Tou mean the son of the ould Gineral 
of Athlone. 

A chwus of laughter hea/rd outside as Sheelah 
Malone. runs on the stage, b.h.e., fol- 
lowed hy Phadrig. 
Sheelah (speaking) . — Now be off wid ye ; 



don't follow me about. What do you want, 
Mr. Phadrig. 

Phadkig. — Nothin' less than yourself, my 
darlin'. It's dying in love wid you I am. I 
want to make you my wife. 

Sheklah. — Arrah be off wid ye. What 
means have you to keep a wife ? 

Phadbig (singing) 

Sure we've both got health and strength, and 

willing hands to toil, 
And there's a living always for those who till

Scene 2. 

A roadside, with a style leading to NoraVs cot- 
tage. Nora enters in the background, fol- 
lowed hij Talbot, the Agent, and goes out 
of sight ; at the same moment Oliver 
Goldsmith enters unperceived by them, but, 
having recognized them remarhs : 
There goes the village beauty, followed by the 
young agent, who, I suspect, would fain be 
poaching on those sweet preserves. He liad 
better be cautious ; Nora's lover is not the man 
to bear it tamely. I'll lie perdue, and note how 
Bhe receives the rich man's suit. \_Betires. 

Enter Noea, followed by Talbot, the young 
Agent. 

Talbot. Sweet village maid, I pray you do 
not frown on me ; neither fly, but turn, and, 
with a kindly ear, receive the gentle and per- 
suasive words with which I would fain besiege 
and captivate your heart. For your sake, sweet 



Nora, I cast aside all care for what the world 
may say about the difference of our rank or 
our possessions. Tou are the only wealth that 
seems to take hold of me. Deign but to smile 
on me, and I am repaid for every sacrifice. 

NoEA. Think not of making any for my 
sake ; your suit is truly a terror to my heart, 
which, once for all let me tell you, is to another 
given. 

Talbot. Some village swairi or landless 
churl 

Nora. Suppose he is To him I gave my 
love, and will never take it back. Ah no ; 
were he sunk In the lowest depths of poverty, 
and you the wearer of a crown which you 
would share with me, I'd say, as I do now, I 
would not have you. To my promise I'll be 
true. [Exit. 

Talbot. O misery ! must I then my fate 
endure ? The slave of my fierce love; to seek 
and sue as if for life itself, and only meet with 
Bcom.

Patrick {spcahing). — 'Tis true, my love, tlie 
grief of parting is at hand, and I have come in 
haste to say farewell. 

NoEA. — Farewell from you to mel You 
surely do not mean it. 

Pateicic. — O yes, my love ; from my ances- 
tral home and farm thrust forth, the means of 



living are to me denied in this my native land, 
so I must hence to seek for better times o'er 
the sea, whieli will enable me to come and ask 
my love to sliare a home in some way worthy 
of her. Till then, my love, farewell. 

NoBA. — But how long, dear love, shall I your 
absence have to mourn ? How long ^vill this 
your exile last ? 

Patrick. — I cannot say, but I truly fear 
will prove to us a long farewell.

Enfer Goldsmith (fpeaJcing). 

The landlord's ruthless agents have begun 
their cruel task, and no s])ite left undone to 
make their victims seek far hence to roam. 
(^Murmurs outside, with soft music — violins with 
mutes,)The voice of mourning burdens now the 



gale (murmurs) ; for, loth to go, each tenant 
leaves his home, and sounds of son o\v far and

SoEiTB. — Parlour in the Squire's house. 
Enter Squire Tliornhill, just arrived from Genoa. 

The arrival in this village brings 
to my mind some sad reminiscences. Htre, 
some twenty years gone by, I had the misfor- 
tune to lose my dear wife, wliose death Was 
brought on by a sad and fatal accident to our 
only child at nurse, who was drowned while 
undergoing the barbarous process of bringing 
out children in a boat, and dipping them in the 
river Shannon, close by where the nurse lived. 

I remember it well. Was not the 
other child saved? 

Tes ; but that was the peasant's 
child. Ours, alas ! was drowned, and his 
remains were never found. I have been told 
that my poor wife used to say that the child 
had a burn mark on his left arm, which would 
identify him if found. But of wLat avail is it 
to be talking of it now ? All dead and gone I 

We have all Our troubles 
Here I find, on my return, my tenantry driven 
away, and their houses levelled, and the place 



a desert. So much for the management of an 

agent ; but as he is now gone to his long 
account, we must e'en let the dead rest. 

Enter Nora. 

My dear Nora, your beauty has unintentionally 
on your pilrt been the cause of much disaster. 
Say why did you not accept the proposals of 
Walter Talbot, who wished to mai-ry you, and 
thereby have obviated those acts of violence 
which have depopulated this village, and all 
for a peasant boy, who, I hear, has left you, 
and gone away. 

Boccah and Friend. No, no, your honour; 
he's here to the fore (Nora starts), and a right 
hearty lad he is, God bless him ! He's returned 
a gineral in the Spanish service. As to his 
being a peasant, he's nothing worse for that I 
hope. He left when the other villagers were 
driven away by the bailifls ; but he's returned 
now to claim his bride, with your honour's 
permission. 

Patrick enters in officer's uniform. Nora starts, 
and rushes into his arms, and having 
embraced, he leads Nora forward, and 
sings.

3. No land like thine, my native isle, throughout the world is seen, 
Which, under Heav'ns approving smile, is ever robed in green ; 
So constant, Nora, is the love I know thou bear'st to me. 
So faithful tco will ever prove the love I bear to thee. 
Dear Nora, &c. 



Sqvire (lo Patriclc, after congratulating Mm on 
his return). And what's your name, young 
man ? 

Boccah. Patrick O'Donnell, your honour, 
and devil a decenter boy from this to the rock 
of Dunamaise. 

Squire. O'Donnell ! O'Donnell ! Was not 
tliat the name of the child that was saved? 
But my poor child never was found. I used 
to hear my poor wife say that the children 
were so like that you would hardly have known 
them apart ; and, unfortunately her death a 
day or so after the accident, prevented, as I 
was from home at the time, any recognition of 
the child's remains, even if he had been found 
(which was not the case), but from a burn on 
his arm. 

Boccah (interrupting'). I was the boatman, 
your honour, and Patrick O'Donnell was one 
of the childre. 



Squire. You the boatman, Boccah ? 

Boccah. Tes, your honour ; and by the same 
token I remember well that 'twas the child 
who was saved who had the burn on hia 
arm. 

Squire, (looldng anxiously at Patrick) 
exclaims : A burn on his left arm ! And have 
you such a mark, young man ? 

Patrick. Indeed, Squire. I have such a 
mark from childhood, together with many 
others I received in the late war. 

Squire Can it be that I behold in you 
my long-lost son? (Embraces Patrick.) Oh 
that his mother were here ! 

Boccah (to his friend of the First Act) Now, 
Lanty, my boy, my dream is out that I told 
you of when we were coming over the hills 
three years gone by.
